You'd be surprised at all the people trespassing when you have 8-10 cameras set up like my uncle does. We get pictures all the time. We've caught a few people as well. My favorite was the person that drove around our gate stole the decoy camera all while getting filmed by the camera we had hanging 20 feet in a tree aiming right at it.
Took a little walk last evening after work and saw many still holding..a few were great looking three yr olds a couple of smaller ones were half racks. Was able to find 1 small side before backing out from seeing the bucks still holding near..Western Dane County
I had someone swipe one of my cameras this year on private land and in a place I would never expect someone else to be. Been hunting that spot 15 years and have never had a problem before but it only takes 1 D-bag out roaming around to change that! I put the camera up on Sunday afternoon and headed home, worked Monday & Tuesday, headed back up north and hunted that spot Wednesday and camera was gone! Man that ticks me off! I always lock any that I put on field edges but now I will be locking all of them.
Shed, that sucks man. I don't understand people these days. It's ridiculous what all the video's and people chasing a number does to the minds. It's NOT okay to walk anywhere you want...but people think since others are doing it on video's, it's okay to do. Most have permission, some do not. We have 2 iowa leases, people are on them ALL the time w o permission. it really bothers me too, I pay money and i'd like to find some bone too. Usually the easy stuff is gone. we have to walk 2 days looking in the timber to find a few. Sad stuff. I've had stand stolen on private but never cameras messed with yet. I don't lock them but I do have a code on them. I suppose they could pop out the card and delete the pic and pop it back in and i'd never know. I guess i'd rather have it that way then ruin my stuff.
